Applying for National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Site Approval
Approximately 3,800 Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) nationwide provide access to primary care services in rural
areas as certified by Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS).Currently, we estimate less than one third
of RHCs are NHSC\u2010approved Sites.Recruitment and retention of clinicians in rural communities is no easy task.
Since 1970 the NHSC, through Scholarship and Loan Repayment Programs, has helped clinical sites attract and
retain medical, dental and mental health providers who are dedicated to working in underserved communities.

Many RHCs may not know about their ability to use the NHSC as a tool in their recruitment and retention strategy. NHSC has provided the following guideline to educate and assist RHCs in applying for NHSC Site Approval as well as providing information on how to post vacancies for clinical openings.

1.CMS Certified RHCs are offered an Automatic Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) designation.
\u201cThe Health Care Safety Net Amendments of 2002 provided for automatic facility HPSA status for all RHCs that meet the
requirement of providing access to care regardless of ability to pay.\u201dRead more:
http://bhpr.hrsa.gov/shortage/autoscore.htm. Call (301) 594\u20100816 for more information.
2.After attaining HPSA designation, meeting eligibility requirements for NHSC Site\u2010approval is relatively
simple. Facilities may be eligible if it:
\ue000
Is located in a HPSA
\ue000
Provides at least one of the following services: primary care, mental and behavioral health, or dental services
\ue000
Provides services on a discount\u2010fee schedule
\ue000
Accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and Children\u2019s Health Insurance Plan
\ue000
Maintains full\u2010time hours (40 hours; 36 of which are clinic hours)
\ue000
Follows sound fiscal management.
\ue000

3.By joining the NHSC by becoming an approved site, you can better attract and retain primary care
clinicians. Membership in the NHSC provides you:
\ue000

Tools to help you recruit and retain clinicians. (About 80 percent of NHSC clinicians continue to work in a HPSA
beyond their initial commitments, 70 percent stay at least five years and about 50 percent make caring for
underserved people their career.)

\ue000
An added benefit to clinical staff at no additional cost.
\ue000
Access to our national recruitment database where you can post clinician vacancieshttp ://nhscjobs.hrsa.gov
\ue000
Ability to recruit midlevel providers, such as Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners, who actively use the Job
Opportunities List and are eligible for loan repayment opportunities.
\ue000
Linkages with academic institutions and other organizations to support your recruitment efforts.
